Geomancy #2: A Short History

Geomancy has lost prevalence as a form of divination to tarot or astrology in the modern world. However, 400 years ago a geomancer was far more common than tarot in the western world.

The Book Of Abramelin: The First And Only English Interview With George Dehn

This is an early interview that I did with Georg Dehn in 2014 regarding his book he compiled, The Book of Abramelin. This book came into prominence thanks to McGregor Mathers translating the French manuscript and Aleister Crowley doing the rite at the Boleskin house. This gave the book a tarnished name as many claim that the house was haunted. Eventually the guitarist of Led … Continue reading The Book Of Abramelin: The First And Only English Interview With George Dehn

Podcast #1 – The Power of Kabbalah Book Review

I have been studying Kabbalah for some time. Every time I find a good book on Kabbalah I see that there are many types of styles of writing on the topic. Yehuda Berg certainly uses a great modern language to explain very abstract and difficult concepts.
